Man Utd prepared for Vidic absence until Christmas
Manchester United skipper Nemanja Vidic could be out until Christmas, boss Sir Alex Ferguson has said. The Serbian defender was ruled out for a minimum of eight weeks after undergoing knee surgery in September.
But any hopes the 31-year-old might be back before the end of November have proved optimistic with Ferguson telling MUTV: "I think we're talking around December for Vidic. Maybe around Christmas time."
